Video game streaming juggernaut Twitch.tv is stepping up its HTML5 game today with a move to get rid of buggy and overly-patched Flash in Twitch’s website.
The move today is only for the player part of the equation, but a full HTML5 solution should be forthcoming.
Adobe Flash is getting more and more press about its security vulnerabilities these days, with security experts and large websites like Facebook bemoaning how bad Flash actually is.
Unless you want to spend the rest of your life patching Flash vulnerabilities, it’s probably time to dump Flash altogether.
Competitor YouTube got rid of Flash a while back by defaulting to HTML5 players, as well, adding insult to injury.
That’s what Twitch is doing right now, and as the biggest streaming solution for video gamers and e-sports, this has got to hit Adobe Flash where it counts.
